Narendra Modi Ranchi Rally: As it happened
Zee Media Bureau
2:50 pm Modi concludes his rally by ensuring that the BJP will usher in a better and brighter future for Jharkhand. And the people (Congress) who just believe in doing `Aakashwani`, will be of no use.
2:50 pm This is a historic rally. When I was watching it from the chopper, I could see a sea of humanity queued up for this rally. I can see the future clearly. The 2014 polls would be a revolution against misgovernance.
2:48 pm The country need development, and not division. People of the country need opportunities, not opportunistic politics. The youth need employment and not political chaos. People need skills, not free sops. People need security, not the poison of communalism. The elders need support and not struggle.
2:47 pm The Congress is a burden for the nation. The party is cut off from the people. Their leaders can`t hear the public`s voice.
2:45 pm Jharkhand`s electorate must support the BJP and we ensure it a bright future. Otherwise, its young can never be `Bharat ke Bhagya Vidhata`.
2:40 pm People ask me what`s your vision? Jharkhand has coal but no electricity stations. Where is the vision? If there were power stations here, then Jharkhand could create so much electricty so as to illuminate not only Jharkhand, but the entire nation. But today the state is in darkness. The Centre doesn`t care.
2:36 pm: Can you count on those seated in Delhi when they haven`t heard your voice since 50 long years?
2:32 pm: Delhi government has been paralysed. The Centre has done nothing for Jharkhand since Independence.
2:30 pm: In 2014, we have Lok Sabha Elections. Let all 14 Lok Sabha seats come to the BJP.
2:27 pm: What is needed is not just promises, but intentions. Nor does Congress have good intentions, neither morality in their intentions.
2:21 pm: Jharkhand people would have not been poor if there was a BJP government in the state. People ar epoor here despite abundant resources.
2:14 pm: Three states were formed at the same time - Jharkhand,Chhattisgarh & Uttarakhand. Why is it that Ch`garh is on a development trajectory but other two are lagging way behind?
2:10 pm: It was Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji who had a vision for Jharkhand, that vision needs to be realised.
2:05 pm: Modi starts addressing the rally
1:30 pm: Modi reaches the venue
Narendra Modi landed near the venue in a chopper from Birsa Munda airport.
11:00 am: Crowd starts to gather at the venue
The people of Jharkhand began assembling for the Narendra Modi`s speech. Modi will make the speech from the stage which is shaped like a Parliament House.
The Dhurva Ground in Jharkhand`s Ranchi is all set to be graced by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modion who will address the crowd in his `Vijay Sankalp` rally today.
The remarkable point about this rally is that Modi will address the crowd from the stage with a model of the Parliament in the background.
The back side of the stage from where Modi will address the crowd, has been made in the form of a Parliament house to give an impression of the Parliament.
It`s not the first time that Modi`s stage has seen such an innovation. Earlier in Chhattisgarh rally on September 7, his stage was shaped like the ramparts of the Red Fort.
Also on 15 September`s Haryana rally, there was a poster of Parliament at the backdrop of Modi.
Barricades have been set up and 40 doors have metal detector installed besides CCTV cameras that are installed in the area to monitor the activities.
